altARQ collaborative is a consultancy practice rooted in architecture and urbanism for The Global South. We work with crossovers of multiple disciplines to system think and design for problem-solving with r-urban resilience, inclusion and spatial equity as our core concepts.

altARQ design studio and altARQ r-urban lab are the collaborative's two investigating arms.

Founded by Tunisha Mehta in October 2019, altARQ collaborative operates from Patna and Delhi.

Tunisha had her professional training from Design Atelier, Bangalore, junya.ishigami+associates, Tokyo and Mangera Yvars Architects, Barcelona. She works with the state government, spearheading an international collaboration of volunteers from multiple disciplines for new urban studies’ exploration and implementation. Having worked in India, Japan and Spain, she firmly believes a deep contextual understanding is key to any veritable set-up. Her practice is anchored in the r-urban development of Bihar, India. She studied architecture from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra in Ranchi, India.
